Domaine de Fondrèche Divergente 2018 is the very grand cuvée of Domaine de Fondrèche, rightly considered one of the greatest wines of the Ventoux.
This cuvée is produced only on exceptional vintages and in limited quantities. Soil, subsoil, micro-climate, unique exposure in search of perfection.
Blend : A plot of Old Syrah planted in 1955 exposed to the rising sun.
Vinification & ageing : Traditional, 21-day vatting with only a few small punchings of the cap. Aged 12 months on lees in tuns and barrels. Bottled on fruit day.
Domaine de Fondrèche Divergente 2018 Red Tasting Note: The color is dark purple. The nose starts with a bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, spring flowers, violets followed by a light toasty note. The mouth is opulent without being heavy, voluminous without excess, the tannins present but silky. A pure, elegant wine
The Fondrèche plateau comes from ancient alluvial deposits, it is a very stony soil (rolled pebbles, flint and crystalline) chalky from the surface with a sandy clay texture.
The 12Bouteilles tips : a great Ventoux wine with the appearance of a great Côte-Rôtie, a rare wine that proves the talent of the Domaine Fondrèche team. A great wine for dinner, perfect with a wild boar stew, a piece of grilled beef, a pork pluma with thyme
